UHA is a relatively new face in Helsinki’s vibrant party scene but she’s already found her own approach to performing as a DJ. Her focus on music is highly analytical in both logical and emotional ways which can be heard in her well structured storytelling sets. Through music Uha reflects on her thoughts and emotions, as well as her insecurities and strengths. For her it’s not only about digging music but self development and exploration as well. In party culture she appreciates community, openness and freedom to be whatever you want to be.

SALAMARI SOUND SYSTEM – a heatwave behind the soundwise guidance

”Our sound system was built four years ago in a desperate lack of a proper actively running sound in the area of Kanta-Häme. Founder of the sound, Joona Venäläinen, was constantly getting more and more interested in the sound design and the air motion that we hear as a sound, that has the power of moving mountains and breaking the barriers. We wanted to experience music as a physical thing, just like we had had the chance to experience it during the past years in the dances and parties organized by other sound systems.

Our mission is to offer a customly designed and built high quality sound for the real experience in music and in all of its frequencies. Things that might move us and our thoughts, change our perspectives and alter our consciousness in a spectacular way that nothing else can compete.

We feel that the rythm and the music exists to unite people and vibes and the mighty Salamari Sound System is our teaching tool to complish that task in a way like we feel it should be done. We create the sound.”
